Cuauhtémoc Blanco defends himself by photography with alleged drug traffickers

The former soccer player and current state governor Mexican from Morelos, Cuauhtémoc White, considered this Tuesday that politics is a constant “war dirty” after a photograph was released in the press today where it appears with alleged drug traffickers.

“I am no offender, nor pact with criminals, I will continue working to bring peace to the state. Better that the ‘narcopoliticians’ who are here (in the state) worry. They are being investigated, I have nothing to hide, let them investigate me 100%, “Blanco said after a military act.

“That photograph is one of the ones I have taken,” he added. “Dirty war?” They asked the ex-footballer, who replied: “That’s right, that’s the politics and how I like the ‘trancazos’ (blows) I’m going with all this 2022 against these characters who have done so much damage to the state “.

The newspaper El Sol de México published on Tuesday an image that, it specified, was verified, where Blanco appears together with Irving Eduardo Solano, alias El Profe, leader of the Guerreros Unidos Cartel arrested in February 2021.

Also appearing are Homero Figueroa, alias La Tripa, alleged leader of the Comando Tlahuicas criminal group; as well as Raymundo Isidro Castro, alias El Ray, who was the regional leader of the CJNG cartel in Morelos and who was assassinated in October 2019 in a fight at the Morelos Reintegration Center.

According to the newspaper, the image was captured shortly after Blanco, 48, took office as governor of Morelos on October 1, 2018.

The three-time World Cup winner said that this type of issue will continue to appear in the media because opposition parties are already shaping up for the 2024 election year.

He also said that all the information he had on the people who are involved in drug trafficking in Morelos, “the narcopoliticians”, he handed over to the Attorney General’s Office (FGR). “It is no longer in my hands or on my court,” he added.

In mid-September 2021, the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office of Morelos, central Mexican state, received a complaint against Cuauhtémoc Blanco and a network of friends and family investigated by the Federal Government’s Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF).

The complaint for illicit enrichment, filed on September 13, was released on behalf of Enrique Paredes Sotelo, president of the Morelos Bar Association.

The complaint was filed a year after an investigation by the FIU and the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) became known for an alleged corruption network of Blanco’s collaborators, governor since 2018 by the Social Encounter Party (PES), an ally of the Federal government.

Blanco is known for being one of the best soccer players in the history of Mexico, where he was the second highest scorer for Club América and the third highest for the Mexican National Team.
